a non-cheesy inspirational sign is my fave

January 16, 2014

Today’s post is from my real life best friend and all around creative gal, Kelly of Cloudy Day Gray. You could easily adapt this project to spell out any message. I think a happy birthday one is in order.

Let’s celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day this year by creating and displaying something that reminds us to dare to dream big. And to teach our kids the importance of listening to that inner voice that tells us that treating all people equally, no matter what, is the right thing to do.

Supplies: Wire, needle nose pliers, wire cutters, yarn, scissors, and this template.

Process: Shape the wire into the thought bubble and words following the template. Make sure to leave extra wire at the ends to attach to bubble. Wrap the words in yarn and attach to the thought bubble. Then, twist another piece of wire around the thought bubble to hide the connection points of the words and to provide a bit more rigidity. Finally, wrap the thought bubble in yarn, hang, and enjoy!

Time: The entire project took me about five hours from start to finish. It was not difficult, in fact, wrapping the yarn was very relaxing. Now, go make your own!
